    Default problem loading page

    recently I have noticed that when I receive an email notification from opensuse forums advising there has been a reply to a thread I subscribe to - clicking on the link in the email loads my browser and presents me with a web page with this message

    Corrupted Content Error

    The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because an error in the data transmission was detected.

    The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because an error in the data transmission was detected.Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.
    If I am logged in to the opensuse forums and click on the email link then the page loads just fine.

    edit: have also been seeing some pretty slow performance in the forums over the past few days.
    Something going on?

    I observe the same.

    The first email link I click after I log in in my system gives (a badly translated Dutch version of) that error message. When I the log in into the Forums (using the main page) and click again, it works as expected. Because I leave that loged in home page there for the rest of the day, I only see this once per day. But it is annoying. And of course some bug.

    The problem I mentioned in the first post is still persisting for me - using Firefox 9.0.1

    Is anything happening with it? Others seeing it still?

    I haven't seen any other reports of it - could you post one of the
    notification links you receive so we could look at it?

    here's one I had just now

    Wireless connection speed 802.11N

    Repeatedly hitting the try again" button it still doesn't work.

    Log in to website and click link and page loads as normal.

    here is the entire content of the email (although the forum is changing the display of the links a little)

    Dear farcusnz,

    lwfinger has just replied to a thread you have subscribed to entitled - Wireless connection speed 802.11N - in the Wireless forum of openSUSE Forums.

    This thread is located at:
    Wireless connection speed 802.11N

    Here is the message that has just been posted:

    The only test that means anything is to use netperf or iperf and measure the
    throughput on TX and RX. You must, however, do those transfers to a second
    computer on your local network, with the second machine connected to the router
    by a wired connection. Any tests run through the Internet such as speedtest.net
    will only measure the speed of your broadband connection which is a lot slower
    than almost any wireless link.

    There may also be other replies, but you will not receive any more notifications until you visit the forum again.

    All the best,

    OK, that's a variation on a known (reported) issue - if you've already
    authenticated to the forums before clicking the link in the e-mail, does
    it work then? (That will confirm this is another instance of an issue
    that's been around for a bit).

    When you say "authenticated" I assume you mean logged in to the forums?
    But yes, if logged in before clicking the link the page loads fine.

    Yes. Though I seem to recall now that you might just need to have gone
    to the main page prior to clicking the link.

    OK, so it's similar to an already known issue. I'd use the workaround of
    opening the forums page first and then click the link.

    is this at all related to the issue where if you click on a forum link in a google search result it takes you to the Opensuse forum front page rather than the actual page (thread) linked to?

    Anything in the works to correct the problem?

    i've not seen that problem and suggest you will see it go away if you
    delete all google, opensuse and novell cookies, then restart your browser..
